Louca Quoted in Physics Today

Monday, September 27 2021

Despina Louca was quoted in Physics Today about the temporary closure of the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR).

From Physics Today:

Louca says it will be difficult for her students to complete their theses without neutrons. “We do a lot of research on magnetic materials, and the neutron is the best probe when it comes to magnetism because of its intrinsic magnetic moment and the very high resolution that neutron techniques provide us with. Because they are highly penetrative, neutrons are also best for determining structures and dynamics in specialized environments, such as those involving magnetic and electric fields.”
